Peace and Conflict Studies
Join us in learning about the complex origins of violence and the practical skills of advancing human rights and social justice.
As a Peace and Conflict Studies major, you will actively engage with faculty and staff to analyze and construct a more peaceful future—a world that is economically viable, politically democratic, and environmentally sustainable for all.
Our graduates are succeeding in professions including policy analysis, government, non-governmental organizations, journalism, teaching, law, and business.
As interns, our students collaborate with experienced peace-builders in such organizations as the Exodus Refugee Center and Earth Charter Indiana. Others have interned with Better World Campaign and the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy and in diverse settings worldwide.
